The grant aims to provide innovative education and workforce skills training programs that lead to successful job placement, increased wages and improved job retention for workers in the Workforce Solutions North Central Texas area.
My Possibilities will use the TCC grant to establish the Employment Innovation School, which will annually prepare 300 students with intellectual or developmental disabilities for meaningful employment through hands–on vocational training and certifications in culinary arts, hospitality, retail, administration, technology and other occupations.
“This community partnership between My Possibilities and Workforce Solutions North Central Texas provides valuable upskilling opportunities for Texans,” said TWC Chairman Bryan Daniel. “The TTC program strengthens the Texas economy by creating a skilled workforce to help meet the need of Texas employers.”
My Possibilities hosted a ribbon cutting of the new Employment Innovations School on Thursday, Sept. 21. The facility broke ground in March 2020. The 20-acre campus will add a therapy and communications center, wellness center, outdoor sports complex and dormitories.
